Here’s the scoop –

We’ve changed our name!

Placework represents the evolution of Manypenny Murphy Architecture – our new name speaks to the collective values of our team and our belief that architecture belongs and contributes to its place.

placework, v. – the act of shaping places; the ongoing process of cultivating vibrant places
Placework, n. – a progressive architecture, planning, and urban design firm in Portsmouth, NH

Architecture is a social act; design empowers all of us with the opportunity and responsibility to actively support more equitable, resilient, and beautiful places. Our name change better reflects our team’s skills and alignment with this process, and our sense of purpose in expanding relationships with people and organizations who feel the same.

Thanks to those who have been part of the first ten years of our journey. We look forward to collaborating on new projects, and appreciate your continued support and good spirits. Please explore our new website and share the news with friends and colleagues!
